Get your story straight, Fulham.

Hours after the Craven Cottage side adamant denied having any talks over the future of star forward Clint Dempsey, Liverpool FC released an interview on its site confirming the contrary.

Reds head coach Brendan Rodgers revealed that both parties have indeed discussed the possibility of a transfer for the 29-year-old American midfielder.

"Clint is a player we've enquired about, it is as simple as that," Rodgers told the website. "Ian Ayre, our managing director, has spoken with the club to see what the position is. That is where we're at.
Rodgers added:"He's a very talented player but we don't like to talk about other clubs' players."

Dempsey has been in stellar form over the past two seasons for Fulham, scoring 29 goals over the past two seasons. It is expected that Fulham wants over 7 million pounds for the United States international.

Expressing its interest publicly is a likely sign that the team's ownership views Dempsey as a top target. In April, one of the team's owners, Tom Warner, hinted at the Reds interest.

"We never talk publicly about our transfer targets. However, any team would be lucky to have Clint Dempsey playing on their squad, " Werner told Goal.com.
